9 Celebrity Kids Who Stole Their Parents’ Spotlight This Year (So Far)

Blue Ivy, Riley Curry and all your faves.

As rapper and Carrie Bradshaw-level shoe lover Kanye West once said, “Listen to the kids.”

If you’re a celebrity kid, chances are you were in the limelight before you were even born. The media waited patiently for your parents to make you, and once the news of your eventual coming was announced, they followed your mother’s pregnancy style more than Donald Trump’s thoughtless antics. When you finally made your way out of the womb, millions of people waited days, weeks or months to see your face and would take note of anything and everything you were doing (probably spitting up on your dad).

Celebrity kids never asked to be in the spotlight—they just are—and to some of them (Riley Curry, Blue Ivy and Bella Hadid, to name a few), navigating the famous life comes naturally. They make headlines without even trying and we love them for it. Check out these nine times famous kids stole the spotlight this year (so far).

    Love & Hip Hop Star Amina Buddafly brought Cori, her daughter with Peter Gunz, along to a recent interview with Rock Rants. As toddlers are apt to do, Cori was restless during the interview and actually ended up farting on the interviewer’s leg in what became a hilarious interruption.

  • Riley Curry

  • Skai Jackson

    Disney star Skai Jackson slayed Azealia Banks’ entire existence after Banks went on a racist Twitter rant against Zayn Malik. Skai, 14, put Banks, 25, in her place, giving the Internet plenty of fodder for hilarious memes.
